Polar mapping



I was reading up on spherical landscape renders earlier tonight and thought I'd try the crudest form of this (just polar-coordinate mapping an image in Photoshop) on one of the HDR shots of the Capitol... it didn't turn out terribly great or terribly bad, but it's definately interesting. :)

I found someone on deviantART who does this really really well! Here's a tutorial: http://www.deviantart.com/view/31978224/

Awesome! I was looking for a tutorial like this, without much luck. Most of the guys who do this like to keep the secret to themselves. :) Looks like I need to save up for a pano-head.
